AVeganEthic-cover-high-res“Concise, accessible, and informative, A Vegan Ethic reminds us that compassion is not divisible, and neither should our activism be. Mark Hawthorne’s empowering book explores why and how we can achieve social justice goals by working together and treating ourselves and others with compassion and respect. (And don’t miss the helpful question-and-answer section!)”
Carol J. Adams, author of The Sexual Politics of Meat

“Now, more than ever, we need a smart and compassionate guide to connect animal activists with others working for social justice. A Vegan Ethic is that guide. It powerfully shows why we will be stronger when we work together for a better world for all. I hope every animal activist reads this book!”
Lori Gruen, author of Entangled Empathy: An Alternative Ethic for Our Relationships with Other Animals

“With A Vegan Ethic, Mark Hawthorne has created both a concise introduction to veganism and animal rights and an important call for vegans and animal advocates to be inclusive in their compassion. Drawing on the work of intersectional activists, Hawthorne demonstrates how spheres of oppression involving humans and non-humans are connected and how we can all become agents of change. This is an important book that will have a lasting impact on social justice.”
Kim Stallwood, European director of the Animals & Society Institute and author of Growl: Life Lessons, Hard Truths, and Bold Strategies from an Animal Advocate

“An animal advocate of 25 years, I continue to learn from Mark’s work. His newest book is yet another testament to his skills and passion as a writer and as an effective voice for the oppressed. With his characteristic compassion, common sense, and practical guidance, Mark inspires reflection and conviction in his readers, moving them to change the way they think about and treat human and nonhuman animals.”
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, bestselling author of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge and Vegan’s Daily Companion

“A consistently compassionate ethic can go far beyond not eating meat, eggs, and dairy. In A Vegan Ethic, Mark Hawthorne discusses how this ethic can connect with a much broader range of issues and shape a truly transformational view of the world.”
Jasmin Singer, author of Always Too Much and Never Enough and co-host of Our Hen House

“In this well-considered call to action, Mark Hawthorne makes a compelling argument that animal liberation will only come about when we recognize how spheres of oppression are linked and we work in solidarity toward the common goal of social justice.”
John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America and co-founder and president of the Food Revolution Network

“Mark Hawthorne illuminates a path away from the oppression of animals, humans, and the environment, and toward a more just and peaceful society. A Vegan Ethic is food for the soul!”
Joyce Tischler, founder of the Animal Legal Defense Fund

“Mark Hawthorne provides a practical and accessible guide for veganism as an ethical framework. This book is an informative and helpful primer that demonstrates veganism is not about giving things up, but instead about opening ourselves up to the possibilities of a just and kinder world.”
Sangamithra Iyer, author of The Lines We Draw

“A Vegan Ethic is the most ambitious effort I’ve seen to put animal agriculture into its proper context as it relates to other systems of oppression. By understanding this context, activists will be better equipped to make crucial contributions when it comes to working to dismantle animal agribusiness.”
Erik Marcus, publisher of Vegan.com
